The On Road Sprint Triathlon is a challenging experience for the novice or short distance triathlete. The swim is a 500 meter counter clockwise swim. The bike course goes up Lynch Hill and out San Antonio Drive and Interlake Road to the turn-around at 10K. The hills are rolling and county roads are scenic. You then head back on the same course back down Lynch Hill and to the transition area. The run is a 5K run along the lake and past “Beach City” where the Cal Poly volunteers stay at night. Like all the Wildflower courses this one is tough, but satisfying when you finish. Just being part of the Wildflower Experience is worth every extra heartbeat.
